BIG PHARMA and global health

There is always a lot ado about the possible negative health impacts of new technologies or products that Big Industry, including Big Pharma of course, continuously comes up with. There are always the pros and the cons, and the medium citizen is always in the middle wondering who is right.

Electromagnetic radiation can be classified into two types: ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation, based on its capability of ionizing atoms and breaking chemical bonds. Ultraviolet and higher frequencies, such as X-rays or gamma rays are ionizing, and these pose their own special hazards: see radiation and radiation poisoning. By far the most common health hazard of radiation is sunburn, which causes over one million new skin cancers annually.
